A Spring Garden

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

We are still having a wet Spring, but those Spring showers bring May flowers! I played with my Cricut Explore to create a little garden scene. Card is 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. All papers are from the scrap stack - a good way to use to all those smaller papers for these smaller cuts.
Cricut Cartridges:
April Showers - Phrase "Spring Garden" is cut 2.50"w.
Celebrate with Flourish - Sun/Cloud is cut 3"w.
Create a Critter - Tulips cut 1.50"h., Butterfly is cut .75"w.
Freshly Picked - Garden Gate is cut 2.50"h., Hoe is cut 2"h., Hat is cut 1.25"w.

I enjoyed creating the little Spring Garden. Working with the Cricut Explore makes it very easy to find the images. Although, I do take a lot of time choosing which image is better for my purpose--so many pretty images to choose from! I would like to work in my flower beds but we had rain during the night. Now I hear thunder! Maybe a day to play with the Explore!!

Life is a Beach Flamingo

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I found a little time this afternoon to play with my Cricut machine. Looking through some of my neglected cartridges, I chose this flamingo card feature found on Life is a Beach. Hibicus paper is from scrap stack.

Cricut Cartridges:
Life is a Beach - The card is cut from white Colorbok card stock at 5.5". The flamingo is cut out on the card. Front of card is lined with the hibicus paper. Using the individual flamingo image from the cartridge I sized it to cover the image cut on the card. Size was 1.49"w x 2.74"h. Leaf is cut 1.09"w x 1.3"h.
Thanksgiving -  Thank you is cut 2.58"w x 2.00"h from the white cardstock.

I added some inking and a small green rhinestone for the eye. Simple card but I think it makes a great thank you card for someone who likes a flamingo!
